How to Order. 

Remember It it 
easy to make mis- 
takes, and guard against them by systematically 
following these rules: 

Address Letter Carefully. 
State what you want by Name and Num- 
ber in Catalogue. Don't make clippings. 
State How Much you Enclose. 
Don't Forget to Add Postage. 
Sign Your Full Name and Address, Town, 
County and State. 
If you want to make a complaint, or ask a ques- 
tion, write on a separate sheet as it goes in a sep- 
arate department from your order. 

How to RemH. l T Q bi9 an ma of X d ,o^ 

lowing ways :— 

! 1. CASH, in bills or silver ; Silver should be 
well wrapped to prevent cuUii.„- through envel- 
m mounts need not be TREGISTERED 
which cost Sc. 

new very cheap and are SAFEST. 

3. Drafts on N. Y. can bo bought at any bank; 
Private Checks will be accepted, but your order 
must be kept until they are paid. So don't send 
them tm!e3S oertified. 

4. Postage Stamps will be taken for sums 

r. 1.00, but we don't like them; in warm 
weather lay paper between to prevent sticking. 

Mutilated Coin ^"^^mtx. 

Which is little over one-half. DON'T SEND if 
—but if you do, SEND ENOUGH. We will not 
take it at face value. 

Private Checks* 

As stated else- 
where we do not 
receive private checks as cash; we have so many 
returned marked " N.G." that we are obliged to 
inake this rule invariable. If you Send an Un- 
certified Check we must Hold your Order 
until St has been Cashed. To save this delay 
make your remittance in other form. 

Prepaid Express. I^ 6 ^! 

panies forward packages if prepaid at a special 
rate of ISc. for any package weighing 15 oz. or 
under and 1 cent for each extra oz. to all points 
East of the Mississippi. They aTso carry 
BOOKS and other 3rd-class postal matter under 
same conditions at 10c. for first \% lbs. or less 
and lc. for each added 2 ounces. While this is 
hi cheaper than mail rates we recommend it, as 
it is much safer. 

ia/_ »__..__ the safe delivery of mail pack- 
WW3 Insure ages at the rate of 10c. for 

foods valued under &5.00 and ISc. for $5 00 to 
10.00. To those who do not wish to run any risk 
this is a satisfactory method. 

Errors and Omissions. 

Mistakes will happen. We employ skilled people 
in order to minimize them, but still they occur ; 
if you do not get goods promptly or get unsatis- 
factory goods, write db; don't "kick " any more 
than you must but any way write and when you 
write, be sure and state the facts, viz : When y ou 
ordered ; how much you sent and in what form, 
cash, stamps, etc.; what you ordered. Your com- 
plaint will then have prompt attention. 

' ' P (1 n " Th ere are advantages and dis- 
Ui Ui 111 advantages in sending goods C. 
O. D.— You do not have to pay for them till you 
get them (and see them if you wish), but you have 
to pay charges for returning the money to us.— We 
guarantee all goods to be as REPRESENTED 
and as you get to know us you will avoid this 
useless expense, 


spelled thus C-A-S-H — we pay cash to get low 
prices and must GET cash to PAY— were we to do 
a credit business as most merchants do, we would 
be compelled to add 10 to 25 per cent to our prices.

Tanmc Our Terms are simply CASH 
B&r0¥I3». WITH ORDER "F.O.IS.N.Y " 
We deliver goods to your order here in the city 
either to Post Office, Express or Freight Company, 
aud there our responsibility ceases. We give no 
credit, pay no postage, nor freight, except in a few 
cases where mentioned in catalogue. We do not 
send goods COD. unless one fourth the amount 
Is sent to guarantee charges. 

we will accept 
them for small

amounts (under $1.00) and where Money Orders 
are not Obtainable. But they must reach us 
in perfect condition ; 1 and 2 cent denominations 
preferred. If you can get Money Orders either 
P.O. or Express, please do it as it is safer for you 
and suits us much better. Many small lots of 
stamps make a large lot, and $5,000 worth (which 
Tve frequently accumulate,) are not easy to " work 
off " even at a discount. 


V e do not deliver Goods Free. Our prices are 
•'free on board" here. Please bear this in mind 
when ordering. We constantrjr-jreceive small 
orders which we know our customers do not 
expect tf* receive by express though they give no 
shipping directions nor enclose postage. Where 
■we consider it practicable or economical to mail 
goods we give the amount of postage required on 
each piece under each article and tBIs" amount 
must be included with your remittance, otherwise 
ve are compelled to write for it, thus delaying 
your shipment. Where goods are not to be 
mailed it is well to order them shipped "by 
cheapest way" which our clerks can readily de- 

send out for the goods when we get an order and 
perhaps get something else "just as good" — but 
different; before listing an article we have a good 
stock of it on our shelves so that we not only 
know we can fill your order with the exact thing 
we advertise, but we can do it at once ; many 
think from the magnitude of our list that we can't 
have everything in stock; a walk of a half mile 
through our ten immense floors would show every 
item in this book in generous quantities. 


We are the Agents. That is, we are the only 
link between you and the manufacturer. We never 
buy of Jobbers but always of the maker. We 
don't refuse " agents' " orders and call their atten- 
tion to the wholesale prices we quote, which are 
as low as those of regular jobbers ; but our aim is 
to supply consumers at prices agents, storekeepers 
and " the trade " in general pay. 


are a great convenience but are 
too expensive on many goods. 
We do not wish to have you save 25 per cent on 
a purchase aud lose a large part of it in costly 
transportation— and therefore advise you to avoid 
tho mails as much as possible by ordering a quant- 
ity of goods by freight or express. Wo do not 
guarantee the safe delivery of goods sent by mail, 
We pack properly and deliver to post office; there 
cur responsibility ceases. In case of loss we do 
all in our power to recover the package. There is 
probably not a loss of ono per cent on mail 
package*. ^Valuable packages may be registered 
for 8 cents. 


In a few cases where it so mentioned in connec- 
tion with article. Where goods may be mailed 
economically and safely we give the amount of 
postage required which must be always added to 
price. . 

tistRti 14 Alaiutm Sometimes more 

catalogues may fall into your hands. If so, you 
will do us a great favor to hand the extra one to 
a friend with such remark as you see fit to make.

There is absolutely no profit in small mail orders,

These premiums are NOT given where CASH

In ordering state the number of Premium 
olaimed. These Premiums are made very attract- 
ive and will be found fully equal to representa- 
tions, and are well worth expanding your order to 

liMOn UloUUUllloi large purchases our 
expense of handling an order is less. We will give 
you the benefit, allowing you a discount accord- 
ing to the amount of your purchase, as follows: 

85 to SIO 3 Per Cent. 

lO ta 20 4 Per Cenc. 

20 to 50 5 Per Cent. 

50 aud Higher 6 Per Cent. 

This is a large discount on goods sold as closely as 
ours, and is only allowed when cash comes with 
order. You will find it profitable to "club" with 
your neighbors in ordering, thus obtaining a 
larger discount and cheaper transportation. 

Note — This dicount is not allowed in addition 
to any premium or combination offer.

story, and throw it aside. BUT DON'T I There 
are changes. Many new goods are offered ; many 
many new prices are quoted. When we look at 
some of our old prices we are almost ashamed as 
they are 8, 4 and sometimes 10 times higher than 
now, but its all right. Simply mercantile evolu.

When we get a way inside price from a manufac-

Between the Ingersoll and the usual low-priced wheel. The Inger- 

soil is red-hot from an up-to-date factory. It embodies every late 

^M"*— idea in Bicycle construction. Its Flush Joints, Low Drop 

Two-Piece Crank Hanger and other important features make it practically an 1899 wheel: the other kind have as 

a rule been made up for a year or two, or if recently built it is from old style material, of inferior quality at that. 

Why Ing ersoll Wheels Beat the World ! 

We have hundreds of times been asked by those who know our extra- 
ordinary facilities for producing things cheaply and marketing them direct 
to the consumer in immense quantities, why we have not before this 
commenced the Manufacture of Bicycles. To this we have replied that 
the time was not vet ripe for making wheels at Popular Prices and until 
we could do this we would Stay out. NOW the Time IS Ripe and we 
have GONE IN body and soul, and we are showing what may be done 
under favorable circumstances. We have for years done the largest 
jobbing busi house in the world in Bicycle Parts and Fittings. 

We have also been manufacturing many of the most important parts. We 
have made alliances with all the largest producers which gives us the 
Inside Track— inside even of the largest wheel makers of the world. 
Makers of Steel Tubing. Cranks, Sprockets, Chains. Pedals. Etc., whose 
whole product in manv ease- we have bought for cash during several years, 
naturally give us lowest possible prices and choicest goods. 

AnnthP!< Dnlnl Bicycle Manufacture has undergone a 
HIIUIIBC! ■ Ullift. revolution in the past few years and largely 
within a short time. Two or three years ago wheels were' made cheapest 
in the largest factories where every part was made and nothing bought 
outside, the largest factories even producing their own tubing and tires. 
Being thus strongly intrenched, these large monopolies charged excessive 
prices and ' ' held prices up ' ' (and held the public, up. ) But in this great 
country such conditions are not long possible. Thousands of bright, active 
men and concerns saw the game and almost simultaneously they started 
to beat it. Men with a few thousand dollars knew they could make wheels 
if they could get " parts" and progressive manufacturers knew they 
could make parts if an outlet could be found for them. We knew all these 
people and helped bring them together and the result is that to-day there are 
a thousand makers of a few wheels per week instead of a few making 
a thousand wheels per week and the big monopolies are ' ' suing for 
peace ' ' and trying to find out how THEY can Compete with the SMALL 
Wheel Builders. Many of them have failed, others have closed down, 
some are buying parts and competing and some are going on and losing 
some of the millions they have made. 

We occupy a position which is out of 
reach of competition of either ' ' horn 
of the dilemma. ' ' The large makers can' t touch us for reasons stated 
above. The small ones can' t because we are the people who sell them the 
parts at a profit which they have to add to the price of the wheels. We 
make or buy the parts at very near the original cost to produce in immense 
lots by factories which do nothing else and can therefore make them at 
the lowest possible price. Our Brazing, Enameling, Plating and Assembling 
rooms are the largest and best equipped in the country. They contain every 
modern appliance for building the finest wheels at the lowest price. 

No Fancy Price. 

As to Ourselves. 

Our Assembling Perfect. 

In our wheels we have not only given closest attention to the selection 
of the best and most approved style of parts but also to their relation to each ' 
other and the assembling of them to produce wheels of the lighest running I 
type. The running gear of a wheel is its vital feature and it involves not 
only perfect parts but the assembling of them in perfect relation to each 
other. In this our wheels are equal to the best. 

When you buy one of the ' ' Stand- 
on! " make of wheels you pav at least 
ii of your money for advertising, "name" and expensive paraphernalia of 
large concerns. When you buy an Ingersoil Wheel you pay only for what 
you get. You pay the original manufacturers cost of the parts," bought in 
i mm ense quantities, you pay for building and finishing the wheel a price 
not exceeding $3. 00 or M. oo, which includes our profit. In fact you almost 
get the wheel for the bare price of the material in it. 

Our Triple Guarantee. 

Besides the Guarantee adopted by the Association of Cycle Manufactur- 
ers, the same as is given with all the best and leading wheels, we personally 
guarantee each and every wheel of our manufacture to be free from defects 
in material and workmanship. We further guarantee entire satisfaction 
and will promptly refund your money If you do not find our wheels the 
greatest value you have ever known. 

It is the practice with ' ' old line ' ' 
makers and dealers to offer Ladies' 
wheels at same price as Mens' . This is because their profits are large enough 
to cover extra cost of Ladies. The xustruction of frame, addition of chain 
and mud guards and brake make the cost to manufacture several dollars 
greater and this extra cost the buyer must pay when wheels are Bold on cur 
plan of one email profit. Many lady riders are dispensing with brake; 
also chain guard. Our price for either model with chain and mud guard is 
$2. 50 extra ; with brake $2. 00 extra ; with mud guard only $1 00 extra. 

Special Proposition. }&£r *f SS'i&V^ 

Buying and we are perfectly willing to offer every chance to you for the 
closest inspection before you pay your money. So if you will CCVf) 
IIC 01 flA 3S a guarantee of good faith, we will ship our gERU 
HO WliUU wheel securely crated complete and accompanied with 
our unparalelled signed Guarantee. If on receipt of wheel you find it what 
you expect you pav'the balance of price (after deducting the $1. 00 paid) and 
keep it. If for any reason you do cot want the wheel the Express agent 
will return it at our expense.

to disarrangement. It is of medium size; not too small to he se en with 
the naked eye, and be read plainly from saddle. Its constantly moving hand Is favor- 
ably regarded by all who use it. Hand adjustment is an important feature in 
this meter, as it makes putting it in place an easy task which anvone can do quickly 
and without even one tool— the thumb and finger doing it all. Pork Bracket.— You 
need n it dismantle your wheel to put it on, disturbing bearings and wasting time; 
you simply adjust it to the fork, as shown in cut. When your wheel is removed from 
fork the meter remains in place, and requires no re-adjusting when wheel is replaced. 
Axle bracket may be had, however, if desired. Lever Grip Striker.— We claim this to be the only 
positiyely secure and scientific striker. It holds on the spoke by the leverage applied with thumb-screw.

This ingenious device consists of a light, revolv- 
ing wheel made of transparent material in differ- 
ent colors. When attached to the front of the bi- 
cycle lamp it prevents light from blowing out, and 
revolves rapidly with the air current caused by the 
forward movement of the wheel, or by the breeze, 
|f the wheel is still. The light from the lamp 
brings out the colors brilliantly, and, as the signal 
revolves, the effect is startling and beautiful. It 
may be instantly attached or removed; so con- 
structed as not to interfere with the use of the light 
as a path finder, and once attached to lamp re- 
quires no further attention. The latest novelty out 
and thousands were sold the first week of its intro- 
duction. Postage 7c.

FIRST. The ' ■ ingersoll " Model A is the latest 
Model produced ; in fact it might be called an 
1889 Model, as we think we have, from our know- 
ledge of the most advanced ideas, anticipated thu 
1899 requirements almost exactly. While other 
makers, especially of low-priced wheels find it nec- 
essary to use old-style parts to a great extent, wo 
have no reason for" using anything but the very 
latest products. . . FRAME. Made of best Seam- 
less Drawn Steel Tubing. Ingersoll Flush Joints 
throughout. This important 1898 feature is only 
found in wheels of the highest grade; these joints 
are not only far the strongest because a perfect we! 1 
cannot be had with the old style outside joint, but 
also far handsomer ; when finished the frame shows 
no break at the joints as the lugs and tubing are 
exactly the same diameter ; neatness and strength are 
results of using these joints. 1. 3 8 in Head; 1!; in.

this labor we now offer "The Little Detective" which we guarantee 

to do as good work as many others now on the market sold from 

ten to twenty-five dollars. 

The plates being small make the expense for taking pictures 

very low, and still tney are large enough to make an interesting

The lens is of

The Premo A is a well known Camera, used by the 
best Amateur and Professional Photographers at 
home and abroad. It is one of the finest Cameras 
ever made, and far in advance of a.l others in practi- 
cability and construction. This year we haveadded 
many new and valuable features iu addition to mate- 
rially reducing the size and weight. Premo A 
takes a picture 4x5 inches, measures, when closed, 
4' t ,x5 , 4 x6 7, 8 inches, and weighs only 2K pounds. Has 
a swing back,, adjustable front and rack, and pinion 
for focusing, the working parts of which are entirely 
within the Camera. View finder is attached to the 
bed, and is reversible for taking either horizontal or 
vertical views. Glass Plates, Cutand Roll Films, 
may all be used in the Premo A, and the change 
from one to the other is but the work of a moment 
and can be done in full daylight. The lens is the 
Victor Rapid Rectilinear, and victor Shutter, and is 
well adapted for all classes of work. Made through- 
out of seasoned mahogany, covered with fine black 
leather and fitted with polished and lacquered brass 
trimmings and rich red leather bellows. The Pre- 
mo A is guaranteed by us in every particular, and 
admirably fills the want for a light, compact Cam- 
era, taking a medium sized picture and selling at a 
low figure. Price, complete, with double plate 
holder, $23.75 Each. 

Premo B is a universal favorite among all de- 
siring a high grade Camera at moderate cost. Takes 
a picture 4x5 and is similar in general design to Style 
41 A," but does not contain the elaborate features 
possessed by the more expensive outfits. The same 
care is exercised In its construction throughout, and 
for a high grade Camera with modern improve- 
ments yet at a low price it stands second to none. 
Weighs a trifle over two pounds, and the size, when 
closed, is 4^xG 7 3 x5*» inches. One double plate 
holder sent with each Camera. Price, $19.75 Ea. 

Premo C f modeled after our Premo A, is very 
carefully made and exceedingly neat in appearance, 
being shellacked inside and covered with fine black 
leather outside. Takes a picture 4x5, weighs 2 
lounds, measures 4 ; 9 xr>? : -xG"* inches, including space 
or three plate holders or roll holder. Fitted with 
Rapid Rectilinear Lens, and rotating diaphragm. 
To those desiring a thoroughly practical Camera at 
small outlay and embracing the latest improvements, 
we recommend this one. Price, including double 
plate holder, $16.25 Bach. 

Premo H#— This Camera will prove very pop- 
ular, especially among many beginners who prefer 
to invest, at first, but a moderate amount. It is sim- 
ilar in appearance to Style C, but without the swing 
back, ana is fitted with a single Achromatic Lens. 
In other respectsit is exactly the same. It is without 
question the best folding Camera ever offered at so 
Iowa price. One plate holder with each, Prioe, 
$9-40 Each.

money; making it simple and practical without any of the 
complicated appliances of many Cameras heretofore pre- 
sented to the public. Takes a clear picture 2%s2% inches^

young as watching the airv flight of a balloon.and a foreign inventor has just gotten a patent on a new 
Idea in paper balloons. Tbev'rise from a table in the house or ascend heavenward in the open air. 
They excite the greatest curiosity everywhere they are shown, and thousands are now sold daily m 
Europe. Our foreign representative saw them in London and sent a large invoice across the Atlantic,

as they burst and drop bright star-like orbs slowlv to the ground. Positively no danger of any kind 
connected with them. In packages of 10 balloons. Postage lc. on SO. Price 10c. package; gl.00 Doz.

which affords and creates astonishment 
among voung and old. It shows the

It is a baffler to all, and we defy any

shown in cut and look toward a win- 
dow or other strong light, (daylight is 
better than artificial light); then hold 
the fingers in front of the instrument, 
spread them apart, moving them back-

Fun for the Million and Rare Sport for the 
Practical Joker I— A pleasing novelty and the best 
practical joke, of the season. This beautiful button- 
•hole bouquet is made of artificial flowers and leav- 
es, which so closely resemble natural flowers and 
leaves that not one person in a thousand would 
detect the difference. After placing the bouquet 
in your buttonhole, you call the attention of your 
friend to its beauty fragrance. He will very natu- 
rally step forward and smell of it, when to its 
utter astonishment, a fine stream of water will be 
thrown into his face. Where the water comes 
from is a mystery, as you can have your hands at 
your sides, in your pockets, or behind you, and not 
touch the bouquet in any manner. You can give 
one dozen or more persons a shower bath without 
removing the bouquet from your buttonhole, and 
after the water is exhausted it can be immediately 
refilled without removing it from your coat. Cologne can lie used in place of water when 
desired. We have manv funny things in our stock, but nothing that equals this. Each bouquet 
In a beantlful box with'full printed instructions. Price, all complete, only SOcents;"' 


A handsome convex mirror in a case suitable for carrying in the pocket. For 
many years the funniest and most laughable attraction in nearly every museum 
has been the large convez mirrors in which a person appears drawn out as long 
and narrow as a bean pole, or flattened down like a gridiron with a face as 
broad as a cellar door. This mirror produces the same effect as the large and 
expensive mirrors In the museums. Bv holding the mirror in an upright position 
stout people look thin, and in a horizontal 
position thin people look stout; any one can 
recognize themselves at once, but their fea- 
tures areso distorted and their general ap- 
fiearance so changed that they cannot fail to 
lave a good laugh over it. If you have a 
friend (lady or gentleman) who think they 
are a little better looking than any one else, 
let them take a peep into the mirror and it 
will take them down a peg or two — either 
the ■' short and fat" view or the*'long and 
are stunners and will cure the blues everv time. 8end 
ill afford you lots of fun. Postage 2c Price 6c. Each ; R5e. Dozen,

This is a most wonderful feat of 
prestidigitation, performed every day 
on the stage by men like Keller and 
Herrman. A hat is borrowed and 
after being shown to your 
audience to assure them 
that it is in perfect order, 
you (apparently) coolly jab 
your finger throHgh the 
crown. The owner of 
course protests, but all you 
have to do is to keep out of 
his reach a moment when' 
you can hand back the hat 
in perfecfaerder. The finger . 
consists of a piece of flesh 
colored rubber, moulded in perfect imitation of a 
fore-finger including nails, knuckles, lines and 
other characteristics ; in the end is a needle which 
by a quick movement you insert in the crown.

See this ghastly 
grin 1 We have themi 
to sell. All you need 
to do to give yourself 
not only the greatest 
smile ever produced, 
but also the greatest 
horse-laugh, is to buy 
a Eoosevelt W T histle. 
It is a very ingenious invention from every stand- 
point. The mouth is so splendidly executed that 
it has the exact appearance of those one sees in 
life but once in years. It fits the face so perfectly 
that close inspection is necessary to sec that it is 
not your own. The coloring and formation of 
lips, gums and teeth is so perfect that the illusion 
is complete. Attached to the back is a noise-mak- 
ing device which does actually '"beat the band." 
It will give you a hillarious demoniac laugh, a 
roar like a sea-lion, a bark, whine or cry -anything 
you like, in fact. This novelty can't be beaten for 
a fun maker. Postaj <_

This is an up-to date puz- 
zle, which is not only a test 
of Berves and skill, but es- 
pecially of ingenuity. It ia 
a perfect miniature of a bi- 
cycle wheel, hub, spokes, 
rim and pneumatic rubber 
tire. (As a house orna- 
ment and novelty it is 
worth more than its price.) 
On each spoke is a movable 
metal ball, and the object is 
to get the balls from their 
positions against the rim, as shown in cut, into 
their proper places around the hub. This requires 
no end of coaxing and patient labor, as while you 
are endeavoring to run the last delinquent in, three 
or four others escape. Then to get them back to 
the rim to the average man is just as difficult : but 
there is a way to do it easily. Can yon find it?

Untold millions have been sold

monkey climb the string, 
always moviug his four 
limbs exactly true to Hfo 
and then climb down again, 
simply by pulling or releas- 
ing the string, involves a. 
great deal of mechanism 
which the inventor spent 
months in perfecting.

This wonderful Instrument dis- 
counts in many respects the intrica- 
i lie elaborate and scientific de- 
vices of Roentgen and Edison. It is 
one of the most wonderful of moden 
sensations. Objects, no matter bov. 
dense or thick, placed between its lenses, are at 
if made of thin air, as the eye penetrates then 
Wlthont the slightest effort. What can be more wonderful thau to place your hand, fineer, or a pieci 
of wood or heavy metal in this instrument, between the lenses, and then place it to the eye. and in 
stead of the vision being obstructed, as would be tho case with any except this Instrument, it travil; 
through and beyond the object, as if nothing were there. Of all optical inventions (and there have 
been a great many), this stands alone as the most wonderful and incomprehensiMe. The Camera con. 
tains two sets of compound lenses, mounted in a handsome telescope case. 3li inehes long. It is being 
sold by the million in the largest cities at 25 cents. Consistent with our usual custom, we cut the price

A jointed figure of a skeleton 14 inches in height; 
will dance to music slow or fast, keeping exact 
time, and perform various gyrations and move- 
ments while the operator may be at any distance 
from it. The figure may be examined by the spec- 
tators, who cannot discover the motive power. 
When banded back to the operator it is simply 
placed upon a chair or table, when it will seemingly 
become endowed with life and begin to move. At 
the command of the operator (who may be in any 
part of the room), it will lie down, stand up, dance, 
etc. This is similar to the wonderful skeleton used 
by Professor Pepper in his lectures and exhibi-

gatherings, or for public exhibition In the school or

_ • often found watching the sen-

cardboard base, a German horseshoe magnet and a number of small flat 
lead spots. The object is to get the Magic Spots directly over the red dots, with the aid of 
th^ magnet, from the outside of box. To move them is very easy as the horseshoe is strongly magnet- 
ized and attracts the spots instantly, but to place one on each spot requires great nerve and skill, and the 
length of time it takes to do it depends entirely on the quickness of your hand. It has often been done 
in a minute and then again has taken overan hour before all were placed; but the queer antics per- 
formed by the little spots so engrosses your attention that you hardly notice the passing of time. There

This is an original novelty, aa 
exact imitation of the Electrio 
Push Bell, such as used in hotels, 
apartment houses and else-

maple, highly polished, and the 
•push button of black walnut,

the demand we have just 
brought out our " little joker, " 
the greatest hit of the year. 

When you see a chestnut fiend 
approaching, orafriend whonaa 
ever heard of the old Chestnut Bell, you have simply to raise 
the edge of your coat so as to expose to view your New Electric 
Bell, when he will push on the button at once expecting to hear 
It ring; the result can be better imagined than described. As 
fcon as he toncnes it, you will see some of the liveliest dancing you ever witnessed. The Electrical 
Button Is heavily charged and will give a smart shock when the button is pushed. Never known to 
fall. More fun to the square inch with the Electric Button than anvthing ever before invented. 
Just the thing to use on old chestnut, stale-joke peddlers. One shock from the Electric Button and 
>e will never try to " rim off " any chestnuts on you again, but he will immediately send for a 
button for himself, and square his account with some other fellow. Fun pressure, one thousand 
Jounds to the square inch. There is more real fun in the Electrio Push Button than aoy other ioker 
fcexlstence. Everybody should have one. Postage lc.

A New Sensation*

Of Coat-Kicks like the «)ri K i«al Article? 

An Attractive Pin, 

There is a pneumatic arrange, 
ment within the figure which is 
connected by means of a con- 
cealed rubber tube with a small 
rubber ball carried in the pocket 
of the wearer. Like Loie Fuller, 
you have to reach into your 
pocket to see her dance. It is 
only necessary to apply a little pressure 
to the bulb in the pocket and the 
skirt dancer's pedal extremity describes 
arcs in the air with precision enough to 
destroy a tile at every kick. You press 
the bulb, she "does a turn." The 
chief advantage of the small silver 
Loie over the other kind lies in the fact 
that she is perfect Iv obedient to the 
stage manager's wishes, and all her 
kicking is confined to her own line 
of business. Postag

focus and press the little rubber ball on the inside of Camera, and we predict an Inmtantansoua 
result which will cause much surprise and amusement (the former wiU be experienced by your sit- 
ter and you and those initiated will enjoy the latter) when your subject receives the little stream of 
water which issues from the tube of the Camera. It never fails to produce roars of laughter. It is the 
greatest mirth maker at an evening entertainment and delights old and young alike. It can be refilled

"This Is a BIRD!" not only 
In the worn vernacular, bnt 
In fact. It is, furthermore, a 
live bird! At least it has two 
of the most necessary attrib- 
utes of one, namely, it sings 
and flutters its tail. It is beau- 
tifully designed and perfectly 
made by one of the country's 
leading manufacturing jewel- 
ers; elegantly plated In 14-K. 
gold. Its detail is so fine that 
each particular feature is 
brought up by the perfectly 
engraved dies. This is impor- 
tant, for to get one's attention 
you must wear something 
odd, striking and pretty. Your 
friends will never fail to no- 
tice the bird. Then, while 
they are examining it, you 
Secretly press the rubber 
bulb concealed in your 
vest pocket and to the as- 
tonishment of all the 
bird, till then quiet and 
Inanimate, raises its tail, 
which is of beautiful real 
feathers, and begins to 
sing; and as your friend 

becomes moro Interested and wondering yon vary 
his singing to suit yourself, from the mild chirrup 
of a meadow lark to the Elirill plaint of a whip- 
poor-will. Imagine the consternation caused by 
seeing such a performance of an innocent and 
beautiful Scarf Pin. Last year we were obliged to 
sell this at 70c. Finding it so popular we contracted 
for a large lot, and have reduced the price to but 
little over one-third this amount. It is complete 
with all fixtures, as shown in cnt, including ball 
and about 2 feet of tube. If your fancy pleases. 
you may use water in place of air, and instead of 
filling the atmosphere with musio you fill it with 
water and spray. A great fun-maker. Get it. Post-

There is nothing else that will so completely 
change one's appearance as a false beard. A boy 
can be instantly transformed into a middle-aged 
man, that even his parents would fail to recognize. 
We have two styles — "full beards" and "side 
whiskers with, mustaohe," as shown in illustrations. 
They are suitable for masquerading parties, private 
theatricals, tableaux, parlor entertainments, etc. 
They can be easily adjQ3ted to or removed from 
the face, and young men can have any amount of 
fun by putting them on at evening parties or else- 
where. The transformation is wonderful, and we 
guarantee that the wearer of one of our beards will 
not be recognized by his nearest friends or rela- 
tives. They are made from real hair, nicely crimped, 
Which gives them a wavy, natural appearance. We have a full assortment of colors, white, gray, 
red, light brown, medium brown, dark brown and black. • In ordering send a sms it , or

This is about tho 
novelty ever 
Invented. It is com- 
posed of a neatly 
made and heavily 
I gold-plated skull; Shake- 
speare tells the rest — 
And in those holes where 
: eyes did once inhabit 
there were crept as 'twere 
in scorn of eyes, reflecting 
etc." Ingeniously 
constructed levers ana 
springs inside the skull 
enable the wearer by 
means of a fine silk 
thread running behind the 
scarf, to make the jaw 
drop and the diamonds 
come out and fill the holes; 
the effect is truly awful ; 
enough to startle the most 
phlegmatic. Too well 
made to bo very cheap but 
will yield bushels of fun. 
Creates roars of hilarity and never 
i attractiveness or novelty ; entirely harm- 
less ; will injure none's feelings, but make every- 
one happy. If you want a noveltv to make you 
remembered, get a good one; this is it. Postage

" Aerial spirits by great Jove designed to bo on 
earth the guardians of mankind ; invisible to mor- 
tal eyes they go, and mark our actions, good or 
bad, below." Since the days of the Fox family 
nothing has appeared which has excited scientific 
inquiry into the possibilities of actual intercourse 
between the seen and unseen asdid, and still does, 
the magical, and to some minds the uncanny, 
Planchette. Under its guidance questions have 
d and talcs told so bordering upon 
actual revelations that one's intellect becomes 
confused, and for tho moment at least it seems 
possible to enter the secrets of tho spirit world. 
Scientific journals and societies admit that there is 
an indefinable "something" which controls the ac- 
tions of this instrument to such an extent that its 
an v.his are proved by -actual knowledge to have 
been true. Professor Tyndall frankly says, after 
the most careful examination, that " the phenom- 
ena are inexplainable by any known laws" The 
fireaent generation have only an indistinct refl- 
ection of the days of 18G7, when Planchette was 
read, studied and discussed about nearly every 
i. The instrument is illustrated above, and 
consists of a movable table bearing a wellsharp- 
d pencil In its index point. For an even- 
ing's entertainment Planchette proves a diversion 
both interesting and marvelous, especially as it re- 
fuses to act while under certain Individuals'

The Telescope Vocaphone, 

Here is a funny 
thing; it is figura- 
tively and actually 
a yard of fun and 
is capable of being 

concentrated into very small compass. Suppressed by the Coney Island authorities, 
because it made so much noise and for this and other reasons now wanted by every one. 
When collapsed as shown in small cut, it occupies a box 4 in. square; when ex- 
tended, it is about 3 feet long with a 4-inch mouth; composed of 12 tapered sec- 
tions. Its construction gives the same astonishing effects in magnifying the power of the voice 
as the recently invented Microphone by which ordinary tone is increased to that of a giant and 
carried a mile and over with ease. With it you can speak to the mountain-tops, valleys and forests 
from vour doorsteps; call the folks to dinner from the back lot a mile away and in fact hold long 
distance conversation with your neighbors in general. Furthermore, each instrument is fitted with 
a Patent Vocaphone mouth-piece which gives a peculiar wierd and penetrating quality to the tone 
and enables you to exactly reproduce the bellowing of a bull, the roaring of a lion, squeal of a pig, 
crowing of a rooster— down to the cherrup of a dickey -bird. It will imitate perfectly any band 
instrument from piccolo to bass horn or opera singer from high soprano to basso profundo with all 
the usual "agony". All told we have not in years offered anything with more merit for amusement 
and utility than this Telescope Vocaphone. Made of special fibre tubing coated with silver and gold

Invalid's Home Healer. 


ELECTRICITY is the BEST KNOWN CURE for all these ailments and many others, it is ALWAYS 
BENEFICIAL and NEVER HARMFUL no matter what the trouble mav be. 

Ask any authority, "Is Electricity Beneficial for Muscular and Nervous Affections?" The answer will invariably be 
" Yes." 

There are Millions this Dynamo will cure. Many are squandering, not SINGLE DOLLARS, bnt tens, 
hundreds, and even thousands with Doctors in the vain search for relief. We know how they are buying quark medicines, 
wearing magnetic belts and - devices of avaricious so-caUed specialists ; how they are being scared, bled and 

fleeced by charlatans and advertising fakes. 

Dr. Cutten's Medical Dynamo is the latest and most marvelous invention of the celebrated 
Dr. E. 11. Cutten, one of America's foremost and most successful specialists iu modern sciences. Being a Medical (Doctor of 

xperience and an expert in Electro Chemistry, he has, 
after lone and continuous study of the various apparatus, now 
employed by the Medical World, been successful in evolving a 
machine at once unique and scientific, yet most adaptable and 
effacions as a means of distributing the electrical currents through 
the hnman system in the most beneficial manner. From the large 
medical coils, magnetic machines and other highly expensiveand 
complicated apparatus ordinarily used for electrical treatment 
Dr. Cutten has eliminated all the faults and magnified many times 
the virtues in the invention of this simple little Dynamo. 

This Home Health Giver is wonderful on account of 
its size and low cost, yet generating the effective DIRECT 
CURRENT so essential for the best curative results. The Dyn- 
amo requires neither doctors' perscriptions nor expert handler. 
Nochemicais necessary aiid is always ready for instant use. 

Thecurrent can be exactly guaged by means of the patent. 
switch, developing as it does a continuous volume, without' 
shock or irritation and suitable for the most delicate organism 
or strong enough to overpower a giant. 

The Dynamo c miprises permanent field magnet and armature 
connected with multiplying gear, giving great speed with slow 
turning, switch for controlling current andconductorcordsatt- 
nched toelectrodes which may be applied to any part of the body. 
Mounted on polished wood base. Dr. Cutten's Treatise, a work 
of great value, giving explicit Instructions for home electrical

Since the Bell patents have expired the public have awakened 
to the fact that Telephones are wonderful savers of time and la- 
bor. Instead of going to see your man. you stay where you are 
and talk with him. It has always been our study to fix on the best 
things of this earth and if possible place them within the reach of all the 
best people, i. e., the masses— the workers. The difference between "luxu- 
ries" and "necessities" is usually represented by monopoly and high price. 
Many a device just as much a necessity as a pen or a broom is made a lux- 
ury by patents and consequent high price. So we have gotten out this pop- 
ular edition of the Telephone. Each set consists of two black enameled 
Receivers and Transmitters, perfect reproductions in shape, appearance 
and general construction of the Bell instruments. Their acoustic properties 
are very powerful, owing to their construction on a new model, giving a clear delivery of the slightest 
sound at great distance. They carry with distinctness a whisper 300 to 600 feet. For short connec- 
tions and indoor lines they are much better than glOO instruments. For use in place of speaking tubes.

WO. I 

This useful and beautiful instrument has five lenses, of the best French manufacture. The object 
lenses are achromatic, that is, convex and concave. High power achromatic telescopes have hereto- 
fore sold at prices placing tbsm almost beyond the reach of persons of moderate means. The tele- 
scope we now offer is just what the people want, a real philosophical instrument at a low price. It 
is strongly made and cannot get out of order, but will last a lifetime. The slides and mountings are 
made of brass, highly polished, the telescope tubes fitting closely into each other. Safety caps of 
polished brass cover the exposed ends of the instrument, keeping out dampness, and dust when not 
in use. The main tube or body of the telescope is covered with handsome French morocco, making 
it altogether a most excellent instrument. The length of the telescope when extended is 16& inches; 
When closed, 6 inches ; diameter, VA, inches. Each telescope is furnished with a strong case. 

Postage 13c. Price $3.00 Each. 


For those desiring a still larger and more powerful telescope we have one which measures, when 
extended, 25^ inches: when closed, 9J4 inches; diameter, 1$i inches. This is a magnificent glass and 
is specially adapted for the study of the heavens; thousands of stars invisible to the naked eye being 
clearly brought to view by the aid of its powerful achromatic lenses. We have placed another large 
import order which enables us to reduce the price to $2.60 SacU. Sent by Express. 


It is specially imported from France, and readily sells for one dollar at 
retail. The cylindrical case is manufactured from highly polished brass, while 
there are two separate lenses — one at each end of the microscope. The larger 
glass is a convex magnifier, adapted for examining insects of various kinds, 
the surface of the skin, the hair, fur or any small articles. It will magnify the 
hairs on the hands or arms till they resemble large ropes, and it is a most in- 
teresting companion. The other lens is exceedingly powerful, and will clearly 
delineate every small object entirely invisible to the naked eye, such as the 
animalcules in a drop of water, fishes, feathers and the minutest insects. 
Thousands of living animalcules can be seen in a single drop of stagnant 
water. An insects eye is a very beautiful object when seen through this, 
mioroscope. It is invaluable in detecting adulterations in food, such as flour, 
tea, coffee, smrar, spicps, milk and the fatal tri^ma. spiralis or pork worm.

The new Feather- 
weipht Transpar- 
ent Eye Shade, as 
shown in illustra- 
tion, has decided 
I advantage! over all 
[ other shades or vis- 
ors in the market. 
It is the only trans- 
parent eye shade 
which gives abso- 
lute pmtec tion 
asrainst the injuri- 
ous rays from all 
artificial lights 
when reading or 
writing, and while 
it protects your 
eyes from these re- 
flections, its perfect transparency enables yon to 
discern ail surrounding objects without removing 
the shade from the forehead. The Featherweight 
Bye Shade is neatly bound with best quality of 
braid and has spring bows to adjust itself to the 
head without any pressure. For bicycle riders our 
shade is indispensable. It can be attached to any 
cap, also to office or travelling caps, affording a 
transparent visor and all its advantages. The ma- 
terial of which the Featherweight Eye Shade is 
made is perfectly pliable and does not absorb 
dampness or perspiration, which in itself is a fea- 
ture making our invention the cleanest article in 
the market. Postage 2c Price 19c; 81.86 Doz.

This is a wonderful little machine in the line of Electrical 

foods. Up to date the only portable Electric Generator has 
een a chemical battery, called Medical Coils ; This machine 
is entirely mechanical and generates a very powerful current 
depending on the speed witii which it is run. Attached to a 
sewing machine, and run from the large driving wheel it will 
generate sufficient a current to throw a man down 
instantly, and for all medical purposes, it gives ample 
current bv hand-power. By belting from the large 
puliey which is 6 inches across to small on shaft, a 
epeed of several hundred revolutions of Armature 
per minute is easily attained. This Dynamo is 
perfectly made and is good for unlimited use. It 
uses no chemicals, only requiring power. A great 
Instructor for the young and something by which an 
ingenious bov may demonstrate nearly all of the 
various powers of electricity by adapting it to running 
motors, experimenting and furnishing amusement to 
company. As a remedy for various Ills, electricity is 
weil-known and this dvnamo is destined to supersede all other forms of 
small generators as it has more power than a S35.00 chemical generator, 
costs nothing to run and lasts a life-time. Cannot be mailed.

A mucilage bottle and brush is a nuisance. The 
combination has not yet been made that would 
not gum up at the mouth of bottle, freezing brush 
solid, and straining to its limit the sweetest 
temper. Patent bottles have been made requiring 
no brush, but the "devil will out" and they hhve 
all proven poor makeshifts. So we have gotten 
back to first principles and produced a composition 
called Stick Mucilage, which f"r casual use, such 
as the average person has, beats the liquid in 
every respect. It is always ready, never dried up 
or soured; compact, can be carried in vest pocket;

This is a big improvement in Glass Pens. They are 
hollow down through to the point, aud the action of the air 
allows the ink to flow freely along the ribbed nib. They are 
made of the best black glass and one will last a lifetime. We 
guarantee will write as well, clearly and easily as the best steel 
pen, and a great deal better than ordinary pens. The pen is 
grooved so that it will hold full supply of ink, 
while it has a very fine point, with which writing 
can be done on any kind of paper. The Glass

the hand. The Glass Pen is not an experiment, but a valuable, practical article coming into general 
use. If you try one you will never be without it, they are splendid to draw a line along the ruler for 
they will not blot. The price surely ought to induce you to send for one or more to try. They are 
great for children to draw maps and pictures with. Each pen is enclosed in a Strong case. Postage

We here offer one of our latest and most popular products. This pen is the result of a recent dis- 
covery of the wonderful qualities of aluminum for pen manufacture. A proper alloy of this metal with 
steel gives a maximum of elasticity and ductility; and what is more important, it entirely prevents cor- 
rosion and rust, so common in steel and all composition pens. These pens are especially made for us; 
large and substantial, holding a large amount of ink, and suited to all medium hands. This pen is much 
perferred to gold by a large class of writers, and are nearly as durable; with an occasional wiping 
they will last for years. Extra pens may be had at 10c. each. The Peerless is provided with a new 
top feed, which gives the best results in durability and good work. It will withstand all the effects of 
acids in inks, and produce uniformly good work without leakage or failure of any sort. Furnished 
with a regular full-sized and perfectly made and finished hard-rubber case. Engraved in finest manner. 
6imilar pens in ordinary cheap plain barrel sell in stores at 50 and 75 nanta.

This is a good re! able Fountain Pen, made by a leading manufacturer, and cannot be too 
strongly recommended as being the equal of any sold at a much higher price. All parts are of the 
most approved pattern. Holder is elegantly embossed and polished. The feed is an improvement 
on all others, insuring an even flow of ink and no leakage. The pen point is of popular size and made 
of Goldine, a new and durable metal which is not affected by the acid in ink. When not in use, a cap 
closes the holder air tight and protects the pen point. Each Pen complete in Case with Filler, and 
2 extra pen points. Postage 2c. Price 25c. Ea.; $2.60 Doz.

than a coat ; only banging up-

shape, and prevent baggy 
knees. Pants of every day

This marvelous and scientific kite is the invention 
of H. H. Clayton, Chief Observer at the Blue Hill Ob- 
servatory, near Boston. It is used at this famous 
weather station for sending up instruments in making 
observations at the wonderful height of 9.000 feet or 
almost two miles. Anybody can fly the Blue Hill Box 
Kite upon the first trial; ladies and children find a 
new and fascinating amusement in the sailing of these 
kites and become experts in a short time. Takes but a 
second to start it a-flying, and goes up straight from the 
hand like a bird. Will fly in a moderate breeze, and 
yet no wind short of a gale is too strong for it. 

Celebrate the "Fourth of July*' by sending up an 

air ship and floating the Stars and Stripes a thousand 

feel in the air. Two or more Kites can be attached in 

tandem fashion, and develop a lifting power which is 

marvelous. This Kite has undergone n-any changes

Por Practical Use, as well as appearance, the ' ' Royal ' ' compares with 
tin' Old Time Watches much as a modem railway train does with an old-fash- 
ioned stage coach. It is designed to till the ever-increasing demand that our 
watches have gained on account of their thorough reliability for a "Gentle- 
man's Watch, 1 ' and is the successful result of great ettort and expense in 
tools and machinery, It is as neat and handsome a watch as can be found 
anywhere in the market, and is meeting with unqualified praise from all who 
sec it. It is entirely new, and becoming very popular. The move- 
ment is the regular American Lever-smallest lantern pinion, quick 
train, 240 beats to the minute, stem wind and stem set, and runs 
from 30 to 33 hours without rewinding. It has an antique bow which 
greatly adds to its beauty. All parts are handsomely finished: the 
back plate is artistically engraved, giving it a genteel and rich 
appearance; and the case, which is a beautiful design of fancy 
pattern, is made from a new metal which is an exact imitation o'f 
gold ; wears and looks as well and will stand any test that gold will 
stand. It is non-corrosive and non-tarnishable. Every -Royal " 
is thoroughly tested, timed, and regulated before it ever leaves our 
factorv and 'is sold with our guarantee for 1 year to keep accurate 
time. ' The enormous outputof our manufactory was inadequate to 
supply the demand for the "Royal" during the past holidays, 
and proves beyond doubt the popularity and excellence of 
this watch.

reached a world-wide fame. Their sale 
has exceeded that of any other watch, 
not excepting the famous Waterbury. 
They are the most wonderful of modern 
productions in quality and psice, and are 
the result of ages of development focused 
on one object, having the sole energy and 
aim of the most complete and perfect fac- 
tory of its kind in the world. They are 
purely products of Yankee brains 
and mechanics — not a particle in their 
construtcion|being foreign. As introducers 
of these marvelous watches, isf> com- 
menced their sale over 3 years ago, since 
when the entire product reaches into 
millions. We style ourselves "Watch- 
makers to the American People," 
because we make watches of GUARAN- 
TEED QUALITY which the MASSES can 
afford to buy. Whoever supposed a few 
years ago that a WATCH could be built for a dollar? 
Not merely a watch, too, but one that would keep accurate 
time, and be actually more durable than a high-priced one! 
— one that its manufacturers guarantee 
more strongly than expensive ones 
are guaranteed! Yet such a watch we have 
built and now offer you. How we did it, is a 
long story and an interesting one; but we can't 
tell it here. WE DID IT! and you can now 
participate in the results of this marvelous 
achievement. Our "Yankee" factory in Water- 
bury, Conn., is dropping out 2 of these Yankee 
watches every minute, and our method of selling 
them is through this medium — our Salesman.

An instrument to carry and receive the voice to 
and from a distance of one or two miles, used at 
Yacht, Horse, Bicycle and Athletic Kaces, 
Football Games, Shore Cottage, Farm, Coun- 
try Home, and any place whe <annot 
y heard. The Megaphone consists of a 
irly constructed cone of light waterproof 
material. When spoken into it carries the voice 
with wonderful power and clearness to a great 
distance in any direction to which the phone is 
pointed. On the water, shore, or in any open 
country where there are no obstructions, and no 
rands to interfere, it is not difficult to talk 
aud hear to and fro over a distance of a mile with 
this instrument, while a loud call or hail can be 
heard about two miles. Voices and other souud3 
from a distance, which would otherwise be in- 
audible, can be heard with great distinctness when 
using the instrument as a receiver, that is to say, 
listening at the smaller end while the phone is 
pointed in the direction from which the sounds 
proceed. Especially with the larger sizes, the re- 
sults are wonderful. Sizes given are diameter of 
mouth as they require special boxing. We charge

This scien-

is of best

an optical 
prism, firmly 
enclosed in 
a handsome 
black papier 
mache box. 
At one end is 
aronnd peephole, with an oblong opening on the 
opposite side of the box. By placing the eye at 
the peephole, and reversing the position of the 
box, back and forth, most extraordinary and 
amusing effects are produced. AU objects can be 
made to look much longer and narrower or broader 
and shorter than they are; in fact, so distorted as 
to create great laughter and fun. This Dis- 
torting Mirror, when held in a certain position, 
will make a person in the same room, with you ap- 
pear 50 rods away and from 15 to 20- feet tall, 
somewhat resembling a bean pole. By reversing 
the mirror, the same individual will appear to be 
about 2 feet in height and as large around as a 
Wash-tub. Send for one and have some fun.

built to mo\t through

[any other boat, for a full 
hour without refilling

12x4 inches and shows the graceful lines of a fast boat; boiler is entirely of polished brass with ribbed 
rides- engine is very simple and easily understood, and connected to propeller by strong shaft. A good

Great Reduction in Prices! Fun for the Million!— Here you are boys I Just the thing for a 
little harmless masquerading. Those mustaches are made of the best material, genuine hair, nicely 
crimped. They have a wire attachment, allowing them to be fastened to or removed from the faca 
with ease, and when worn cannot be easily told from the real production of razor and soap. Boys 
and young men can have lots of fun by putting them on in a crowd of friends, who will be greatly 
astonished at the sudden transformation. The goatees are attached to the face with wax, and like 
the mustaches can be removed and replaced as often as desired. For private theatricals, amateur 
minstrel shows, charades, tableaux, etc., where different characters are to be represented, these 
hirsute ornaments will be found invaluable, Our three illustrations show one and the same person, 
the difference in appearance being caused entirely by wearing our different styles of hair appendages. 
The first pioture shows a beardless youth of sixteen; the second picture, the same youth wearing 
one of our mustaches; the third with mustache and goatee. Any boy or man can change his 
personal appearance in the same manner as shown in our illustrations. We furnish our mustaches 
and goatees in six colors— gray, red, light brojvn, medium brown, dark brown, and black. In 
ordering state color desired. Black and brown are the colors usually sold. Postage lc. each ; 2c-

A wonderful and most ingenious 
device. It is easy to set, suited to any 
bait, can be used anywhere, nothing 

ery fish, muskrat, or squirrel which 

bites at the bait is surely caught. Perfectly safe for children, will not rust. Ono 
bait will catch from 20 to 30 fish. Will spring in any position; in short, it 
is a grand triumph over the unsafe and uncertain common fish-hook. Highly 
recommended by the Tribune, World, Press, and the Turf, Field and Farm. The 
Ohio Farmer says : " The Eagle Claw is a very ingenious article. The best device 
for catching fish and game we ever saw. Safe, sure and convenient.'' No. I is

1,000 SHOT RIFLE. 

893 MODEL $^.00 

Shoots 1,000 Shots Without Reloading. 

Simple, Strong and Durable. 

This model is similar in principle to the celebrated Marlin Repeating Rifles, which are sold for 
$26.00, it is a new feature in Air Guns, it holds a thousand B. B. shot, and is most simple in its work- 
Ins, it is a gun any one would be proud to carry and own, it shoots with precision and throws a shot 
for a long distance. All parts are interchangeable and replaced for a few cents: easily taken apart. 

Walnut stock, enameled frame, nickel barrel, weight 5 1 bs. This rifle haa been thoroughly overhauled , the more valuable features 
retained, and entirely new improvements added, making it more easily operated, more accurate, more substantial, possessing 
more length of stroke of piston, thus securing greater force of the shot. No expense has been spared in securing the highest 
attainable results, as regarding the foregoing qualities, and the makers having had the experience of years in developing and perfecting this 
rifle have no hesitancy in making the claim that the Model of 1898 surpasses all previous models. Furthermore: our immense success last season with 
this rifle enables us to reduce our price materially, In spite of the great improvements. Unmailable. Our 1898 Price $2.00 Each. 



This is a new gun of American make and one of the most important products of 
recent years— both on account of its cheapness and quality. One of its most important 
features is its detachable stock ; by means of a cam button the barrel and stock are 
parted in less than a second. It has a blued octagon, barrel 22 inches long with perfect blue finish and rifle bore 
which is guaranteed accurate, fitted with new patent back sight quickly adjustable to every 100 feet up to ,00. 
Its mountings are perfectly made, fitted and case hardened ; also its lock, which is Remington Action, proviaed 
with shell ejector. It has fine walnut stock with case hardened butt cover. Weight only 4K lhs. Perfection of stability, compact- 
ness and good quality. It shoots No. 22 rim fire cartridges, either short, long or rifle lengths and does such accurate work that its use 
is by no means confined to youths and is frequently preferred by huntsmen, who find no fault with its working qualities. We cnn for 
special reasons make an extra lew price on this rifle and fully recommend it to our patrons both on its quality and price. Our Special Price »4.S0 Ea» 

« "ATLAS" 

This is an American made Rifle which 
-»-, for accuracy is guaranteed equal to any. 
H In repeated tests that have been made 
it has out-shot different expensive Win- 

chesters.' Barrel is drilled from the best special gun barrel steel at the Remington 
Arms Factory; has new quick twist (1 in 16& inches) and blued finish, as fine as any; has auto- 
matic shell extractor. No "key-holing" will be found on targets used with this gun. A special and 
valuable feature is the construction of hammer; it cocks down leaving sight and even bore clear 
._ to end; in its upward and forward action it locks itself so there is no possibility of recoil. Every gun 
besides other tests, has a special one for strength, giving it a strain of six times the amount ever used in practice. 
There is little use in buying cheap imported guns when such as this mav be had at our price. Breech and stock detach instantly 
and pack in a small box 5x20 inches; full length 32 inches; barrel K'A inches; weight 3 lbs. Chambered for 22 short or long 
cartridges; the simplest and cheapest shooting rifle in the world. Unmailable. Regular price $-1.50. Our Price, 83.70 Each.

The neatest recent invention for 
smokers which if used would save many 
an incurable disease and often „ life; the 
constant contact of the extremely deli- 
cate membrane of the Up3 with the 
tobacco, drawing out constantly the 
nicotine and other impurities from the 
cigar produces irritation, loosening and 
rupture of the membrane, ulceration which fre- 
ouently leads to cancer and blood poisoning. 
The Smoker's Tip is not a rigid cigar holder, but 
an elastic tip of pure rubber which fits snugly 
over the tip of cigar conforming to Its shape and 
not affecting the grip of teeth and lips but giving 
absolute protection. Postage 10. oa i. Price do.
